Tues Track w/ group: 8 x [400 @ 5k /  200 @ 1 mi. w/ 200m jog recoveries]

My garmin's autopause makes these workouts impossible - forgot to turn it off.  We kept the 400s at about 80 (most were under), and the 200s @ less than 37.  I went hard on the last one and came up with a 28.  Hot days are here - it was about 80 deg., humid and sunny.  Great to do some non-marathon training for fisrt time in a while.  Jogged a couple more while waiting on pizza after leaving.

Went out for a light bit of mile pace work today during what I have deemed to be another recovery week.  6x200m at mile pace and I am feeling why this should've been a recovery week all along.  They hurt... every one except the last two reps.  Average at about 4:55/mile pace, and my legs did not feel well.

5.27 miles total - 40:48

Triple header today in CR Series.  3 races, 3 cities, one day.  AM weather was about 55 degrees and nice and cool in the woods.  by noon, it got a little warm and definitely sunny.

First race at 8am in Brown County - 4 mile trail race.  Pretty technical and lots of steep up and down.  some of the climbs were walking hills, and then some of downs were a controlled falling.  2 water crossings and lots of roots and loose stuff.  Fun and a solid effort for an 8th place finish.  3.98 mi. GPSed in 30:51

Race number 2 at noon in Seymour, IN on flat concrete course.  sun is out, with no cover anywhere- it got hot for this one.  An out and back course with a few turns.  I struggled with my normal pace after 1 mile.  Pretty indicative of some still fatigued legs requiring more recovery.  The trail race earlier in the day didn't help either.  5:41 first mile, and then fell apart.  Really hurt at 6:05 and then 6:15 pace for nect 2 miles.  Think I was about 8th place again in 18:45.  A fellow Quaff runner did however run a huge PR - 16:43 for Mr. Tim Proctor.  This guy is in his mid 40's and I used to be competitive with this guy!  :)  Stuck around to wait for the $100 door prizes they were giving away and got a massive sunburn.

Race number 3 was a 1 miler around a city park in Columbus at 5pm - shaded with several hairpin turns, some slowing gravel and twists in the path and, well, only a mile.  I did the only real smart thing I had done all day after the 5k, and put some ice on my legs for about 20 minutes.  Stuck it out through the pain that is mile pace and finished strong (at least).  about 8th place in 5:18.

Solid day, and very fun, on some still recovering legs.
